    Afternoon all/


    Hope this is the right place and I've broken no forum rules, I'm completely new to this.


    I've upgraded from OMV 4 to 5 this afternoon after upgrading from 3 to 4 a couple of days ago and then realising that 4 was eol'd as well!


    My hardware is an HP Micro server N54L AMD turion II I bought used off a colleague for £40 or so.

    It sits there running a raid of 4 x 1TB HDDs holding the local copy of the family photos and some tv and films accessed by the Plex media server plugin.

    I'm ssh'd from Linux Mint running on a ten year old SFF Acer PC!!


    I followed the notes in the OMV forum "OMV 5.0 - finally out! :-) page #38"


    Here's the edited history of how this afternoon went, maybe it helps somebody;


    452 wget -O - https://github.com/OpenMediaVa…pt/raw/master/upgrade4to5 | sudo bash


    This script failed to finish on my machine.


    453 reboot


    471 apt-get purge openmediavault-omvextrasorg resolvconf


    Still broken, apt-get purge recommended to run the following apt --fix-broken command.


    472 apt --fix-broken install

    Said N to installing new versions.

    It fixed loads of stuff probably from previous upgrades and attempts and me thrashing around in the dark.


    473 wget -O - https://github.com/OpenMediaVa…pt/raw/master/upgrade4to5 | sudo bash


    This second attempt got a lot further than #452 but still failed at the very end but I thought a reboot was worth it.


    474 reboot

    475 apt --fix-broken install

    This did a few more fixes and looked hopeful so tried continuing;

    476 apt-get purge openmediavault-omvextrasorg resolvconf

    Didn't complete fully so tried this again;

    477 apt --fix-broken install

    And it fixed some more.

    478 apt-get purge openmediavault-omvextrasorg

    Completed without error.

    Ran the next command on the forum page.

    479 wget -O - https://github.com/OpenMediaVa…ckages/raw/master/install | bash

    Completed without error.

    480 apt-get update

    Completed without error

    481 apt-get dist-upgrade

    Completed without error but whinged about a load of unused packages and suggested running;

    482 apt autoremove

    Which removed them and completed without error

    483 reboot

    Logged in from web ok, cleared browsr cache and reported version omv 5.

    Did a couple of things and then got the dreaded 502 nginx message in the browser instead of the login screen.

    More googl-ing

    484 omv-firstaid

    Didn't fix anything

    487 omv-mkconf nginx

    Mis-direction, omv-mkconf doesn't exist in omv 5 apparently

    490 omv-salt deploy run nginx

    Didn't fix the web login

    495 dpkg -l | grep openm

    ii openmediavault 5.5.12-1 all openmediavault - The open network attached storage solution

    ii openmediavault-keyring 1.0 all GnuPG archive keys of the OpenMediaVault archive

    ii openmediavault-omvextrasorg 5.4.2 all OMV-Extras.org Package Repositories for OpenMediaVault

    ii openmediavault-plexmediaserver 3.8.2 all OpenMediaVault Plex Media Server plugin

    496 apt --fix-broken install

    Reading package lists... Done

    Building dependency tree

    Reading state information... Done

    0 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 1 not upgraded.


    So nothing to fix, hmm, what now? more googling.


    497 omv-firstaid

    Still didn't help.

    498 omv-salt deploy run phpfpm

    FIXED the web login and plex survived the upgrade and is still up and running - bonus.


    So got there in the end, thanks everyone for all the hard work and info..
